Thank you for testing.
Just curious, did you apply the series in this thread or just test v5.9-rc8?
If just testing v5.9-rc8, no changes to this code were added after 34ae204f1851,
so results being the same are expected.
I just test v5.9-rc8. Where can I find the series patches you mentioned
here? Or just wait for the next mainline release?
There are some functional issues with this new hugetlb locking model
are currently being worked. It is likely to result in significantly different
code. The performance issues discovered here will be taken into account with
the new code. However, as previously mentioned additional synchronization
is required for functional correctness. As a result, there will be some
regression in this code.
